Omak Man Gets Life For 1998 Rape, Murder

Posted: Updated:

 

OKANOGAN, Wash. (AP) - A 50-year-old Omak man has been sentenced to life in prison for the rape and murder of a 51 year-old woman nearly 15 years ago.
An Okanogan County jury convicted Kelly Small last month of the first-degree murder of Sandy Bauer, who was strangled in her Omak apartment in 1998. A separate jury earlier found him guilty of raping a 75-year-old Omak woman in 2006.
The Wenatchee World says (http://is.gd/UZvgWy ) Small on Friday received a life sentence for murder, and 10 years and 3 months for Bauer's rape. Small previously had been sentenced to nearly 32 years in prison for the 2006 rape.
Bauer's case went unsolved until Omak police matched DNA found during the 2006 rape with hairs found in Bauer's apartment. Police re-interviewed people initially questioned in Bauer's case.
